 Product Description

Includes one digital The Pacific Northwest: Past, Present and Future, Third Edition - Textbook on compact disk/cd. The digital media version is an exact replica of the information provided in the printed textbook. The digital textbook is available to educators on compact disk only, unless permission is granted by the publisher for access to digital downloads with a specially assigned per student licensing agreement.

The Pacific Northwest: Past, Present and Future, Third Edition discusses past, present, and future aspects of the Pacific Northwest region and its inhabitants. The book is organized into seven units with 24 chapters followed by the Glossary and Index. The seven units include Unit One: The Region’s Physical Environment, Unit Two: Early Human History, Unit Three: 19th Century Settlement, Unit Four: A Century of Socio-Economic Progress, Unit Five: The People, Unit Six: The Region’s Economy, and Unit Seven: Forecasting the Future. The scope of the book is regional and therefore quite broad. Discussion of events, people, and concepts is limited to the subject's overall impact upon the region as a whole. This textbook was not designed to be a scholarly historical treatise nor a collection of local or personal histories. The book is a regional text designed to acquaint the Pacific Northwest secondary student with his environment and cultural heritage. 


Chapter Keys

Each chapter begins with a bulleted list of key items discussed in that particular chapter.


Student Activities

Student activities conclude each chapter except Chapter 23 Recreation and Tourism. The student activities have three basic parts: A. Developing Vocabulary Skills - important basic and enrichment terms; B. Developing Map Skills - use and interpretation of maps; C. Understanding Concepts - student questions stressing the central ideas within the chapter. The activities are designed to increase the student's depth of understanding, expand the learning experience, and challenge the capable student to see the Pacific Northwest's relationship with the rest of the nation and the world.



The book contains 61 maps and hundreds of historic photographs, supplements, diagrams, climatographs, artist depictions, timelines, vignettes, and charts. The vignettes add color to some human aspect or discuss a topic in greater depth. The history chapters begin with a complete chronological sequence of major events noted in the timeline. Statistical and informational charts provide instant reference for the reader without having to seek the information elsewhere. In all cases the most recent data available was used.



With few exceptions, the maps were drawn specifically for this textbook by the author. The maps are appropriately dispersed throughout the text. The reader will appreciate the proximity of the maps to the narrative discussion of the topic. Each end-of-chapter activity includes a series of map interpretations. The maps help the students' spatial understanding.
